Knee Q & A

What causes knee pain?

It’s common for men, women, and children of all ages to experience knee pain. This large, complex joint is composed of bones, tendons, ligaments, and cartilage. Damage or injury to any of these structures may result in knee pain.

The friendly and professional team at Bahri Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Clinic provides accurate diagnosis and treatment for all ailments that affect the knee and leg. Common causes of knee pain include:

  • Arthritis of the knee
  • Knee bursitis
  • Dislocated kneecap
  • Iliotibial (IT) band syndrome
  • Torn ligaments such as ACL or MCL
  • Torn cartilage (meniscus tear)
  • Strains and sprains
  • Patellar tendonitis
  • Bone fracture
  • Sports injuries

The type of knee pain you experience depends on the underlying injury or condition. Pain from a fracture or other injury may be sudden and severe, while arthritis pain can start off mild and grow progressively worse.

When should I see a doctor for knee pain?

Minor knee injuries may improve with home care methods such as rest, ice, compression, and elevation. Seek medical treatment as soon as possible if your knee pain is severe or you experience any of the following:

  • Popping sound at the time of injury
  • Inability to bear weight on the leg
  • Inability to straighten the knee
  • Swelling or visible deformity

The team at Bahri Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Clinic provides timely treatment that helps you recover from knee pain as quickly and safely as possible.

How do you diagnose and treat knee pain?

First, your provider at Bahri Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Clinic thoroughly examines your knee and asks questions about how and when the pain began. They may also take tests, such as an X-ray or MRI, to check for damage in your knee joint.

Then, they recommend the best course of treatment for your particular condition. Treatment for knee pain varies depending on the underlying cause, but may include:

  • Immobilization with a cast or brace
  • Supportive devices such as crutches
  • Physical therapy to strengthen the knee
  • Anti-inflammatory medications or joint injections

If your problem is severe, such as a broken bone, or doesn’t improve with conservative treatment, they may recommend surgery.
